An Indian Barbie
Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai may soon join the ranks of Hollywood beauties like Beyonce Knowles, Elizabeth Taylor and Diana Ross, by becoming the first Indian face of the legendary doll ‘Barbie’. The representatives for the actress are reportedly in negotiations with the toy giant, Mattel, as it plans to transform the iconic doll into a Bollywood star and sell it throughout India. The former Miss World will have a Barbie modelled after her, titled “Bollywood Barbie”, reported The Telegraph. The company, which recently celebrated Barbie’s 50th birthday, is expecting to cash in on the popularity of the star to increase its sales in India. The 35-year-old actress will have the doll modelled on her with her striking green eyes, and the doll will wear outfits created by India’s top designers.
